Southside Land Trust awarded $25,000 grant

BOSTON  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has
awarded a $25,000 grant to the Southside Community
Land Trust in Providence to help the Springfield
Middle School create a garden on the site of a former
municipal solid waste dump.

The project involves planning and building safe,
affordable off-ground garden structures, and share the
designs so others can use them, the EPA said. Partners
include the Olneyville Community Schools Initiative,
the state departments of health and environmental
management, the city of Providence, Springfield Middle
School, The Hartford Park Tenants Association, and a
registered landscape architect.

The funding comes from the agencys Environmental
Justice Small Grants program, which was launched in
1994.

These EPA grants will help sow the seeds to protect
people who live in areas more vulnerable to
environmental challenges, said Robert Varney,
regional administrator of the agencys New England
Office.
